Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:134: apache

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apache package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:134 (apache).



A possible buffer overflow exists in the get_tag() function of mod_include, and
if SSI (Server Side Includes) are enabled, a local attacker may be able to run
arbitrary code with the rights of an httpd child process. This could be done
with a special HTML document using malformed SSI.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
